This was a nice spot on state street in the heart of downtown, and not far from the beach. We had good service at the bar but unfortunately it deteriorated a little in the restaurant. Food was good - typical wings etc. but tasty all the same. Relatively reasonable prices.

I saw from a number of the TA reviews that it had obviously recently undergone some changes so wondered what the experience would be like. It was however very enjoyable, with the staff very attentive and the beer good. The wings were also tatsy.

This used to be a sports bar with a great menu, craft beer and sports on numerous TV's but the owner is changing it to a different type of dining concept.
